Drugstore Shopping

If you have taken my coupon class, you know that drug store shopping is my FAVORITE.  Believe it or not, I don't even go every week!!!  I really depends on how much time I have or how badly I want the items that are on sale.  Remember--it all goes on sale again eventually!

Here is what I did this week--no crazy scenarios, but I still managed to score diapers, medicine, a pedicure for a Christmas party, gifts for my RACK project (candy) and stocking stuffers for my kids for just $11=tax!

Take a look:

Transaction 1:
(2) Triaminic Pain Reliever/Fever Reducer 2 for $10
-(2) $3/1 Q from 12/4 SS
Total OOP= $4 with $3 Register Rewards ($.50 each!)

Transaction 2:
(6) Snicker’s Nutcrackers $39 with in-ad coupon
-(2) $1/2 Mars coupons (December All You mag and printable NLA)
I bought six so I wouldn’t get beepage –all 6 totaled only $0.34!
(3) Nestle Butterfinger Coins at 3 for $1.50
-$.45/3 December Coupon booklet
Kiss Nail art kit $7.99
-$1/1 coupon my Jedi cashier hooked me up with
-$1/1 December Coupon booklet
-Used my $3 RR from Trans 1
Total OOP:$4.05

1 pack Luv’s diapers at $6.99          $2 ECB
1 box Candy canes at $1.27             $1.27 ECB

And after FINDING peelies on the ground PLUS getting a coupon from the coupon machine I got…..
2 bags M&M’s 2 for $5                     $1 ECB
-$1/2 peelie on ground
-$.50/2 CVS coupon from Magic Coupon Machine

-Used Black Friday ECB’s: $2.99, $.99, $4

Total OOP: $3.78                               $5 ECB total                          
My total could have been lower, but I only went with the coupons I had in my coupon wallet (and found on the ground! ha!) so the M&M’s were a last minute purchase!

In total I spent $11.83 and saved $33.48 or 65% PLUS $5 ECB left to spend next week!

What is your favorite drug store to shop???

My favorite drug store to shop is Shoppers Drug Mart (I am in Canada, not sure about you but I am guessing USA). A few months ago they had mega packs of Huggies diapers on for 5$ each and I had coupons for 4$ of one mega pAck Huggies. Needless to say they were only 1$ each total so I stockpiled a crapload of them! I even gave some away to other moms I knew could use them. That's another great thing about couponing it allows you to give to others when you normally could not! Keep up the great bloggin!!
